Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 5:30 p.m. — RUTLAND — Get information. Be inspired. The GMP College Connections lecture series is hosting a discussion on Energy and Education on Tuesday, Oct. 7, at the Energy Innovation Center, 68-70 Merchants Row in downtown Rutland. The free public event begins at 5:30 p.m. and will last approximately an hour. Light refreshments will be served.
Dr. Matt Mayberry, Associate Professor of Business at Green Mountain College, will give a talk entitled “Creating the Next Generation of Energy Innovators.”
“Innovation requires both creative thinking and hands-on execution,” said Dr. Mayberry. “How can education and businesses come together in new ways to help our students learn how to tackle Vermont’s energy challenges?” An interactive discussion on engaging tomorrow’s energy innovators today will follow.
The monthly GMP College Connections lecture series was created as part of an agreement between GMP and all four Rutland County colleges to work together to bolster economic, educational and community development. The talks will be given by faculty from each of the Rutland County colleges. The presentations will explore a variety of energy issues, including the science of energy, renewable power, financial concerns and the psychology of energy use. All talks will be held at GMP’s Energy Innovation Center in Rutland.
